Dismissed FBI agent changed Comey language in Clinton statement

The focus on obstruction of justice by Trump and his legal team looks like an indication that they believe that's where Mueller's probe is headed, and are making early attempts at discrediting his findings. California congressman Ted Lieu, a Democrat, tweeted: "THIS IS OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE".

These are the latest tweets in the running case from the President, the Tweet game was started from Saturday, just a day after Flynn pleaded guilty, he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his encounter with a Russian official.

On Nov. 11, he quoted a sermon from the late English Baptist preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon about the difference between a truth and a lie, hours after President Donald Trump called Comey a proven "liar" and "leaker". "It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful".

Donald Trump's personal attorney's claim that the President cannot be guilty of obstructing justice raises two stunning possibilities that could cast the Russian Federation investigation and its threat to his White House in a new and even more serious light.

Eric Holder, a US attorney general under President Barack Obama, tweeted in response: "Nope". What would have been far more surprising would have been for Mr. Trump to remain silent and not give the nation further reason to suspect that he is seeking to obstruct justice.

But Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he doesn't agree with Dershowitz or Dowd. UN Resolution 2334 demanded that Israel "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem" and said that the settlements established by Israel have "no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under worldwide law". "What he says is that he put it together and sent it to our director of social media". The White House says Dowd wrote the tweet (his first), and some journalists are parsing the language to see if that seems plausible.

The White House had previously sidestepped that question.

The episode has rattled some of Trump's outside advisers, who have pressed upon Trump since Flynn's guilty plea that he needs to change legal strategy.

"Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn", said Ty Cobb, a White House lawyer.

Flynn is co-operating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"The ongoing Mueller probe is not a good-faith investigation of suspected espionage or other crime", he wrote in National Review over the weekend.

Trump did not suggest he was considering that approach. "I feel very badly". Trump adds, "There was nothing to hide!" That means the President knew that Flynn had lied to the FBI before he fired him - and before he fired FBI Director James Comey. "She's lied many times; nothing happened to her", he alleged.

Trump fired Comey in May, leading to Mueller's appointment.

At the time, Pence said Trump was justified in firing Flynn because Flynn had lied to him.

Though the president has previously said he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey, Gurule said it was reasonable to infer from the weekend tweet that the dismissal of Comey was done in the hope of terminating the FBI investigation.

Your client acknowledges that your client's cooperation may include, but will not necessarily be limited to: answering questions; providing sworn written statements; taking government-administered polygraph examination (s); and participating in covert law enforcement activities. "The president did not", Gurule said.

Trump lawyer John Dowd felt it necessary to tell the political news website Axios that the president can not be guilty of obstruction of justice "because he is the chief law enforcement officer under (the Constitution) and has every right to express his view of any case".

An e-mail exchange obtained by The New York Times indicates that Ms McFarland was aware at the time of a crucial Dec 29 phone call between Flynn and Mr Kislyak that was intercepted by U.S. intelligence.
